9. Stay active
Exercising is important all year long, but many of use get particularly lethargic during the winter. The net effect is that you don’t take advantage of your body’s natural heating abilities. With just a little light exercise a couple of times each day, you can benefit from your increased metabolism.
Ten to twenty minutes of vigorous exercise can warm you up significantly, not to mention keep you warm for some time after. Plus, a healthy body is more resistant to cold con- ditions, in general.
Play active games. It’s just like exercising, but you can get the whole family involved. Charades is a perfect example. Even board games like Scrabble can get the blood pumping, not to mention create a welcome distraction.
